Shout out to Josh Howard!

The department wants to send a shout out to Josh Howard, class of 2007, who is one of the young explorers featured on the National Geographic Homepage. Click here.

National Geographic Explorer's Page with Josh and his work
Josh graduated with a degree in studio art with an emphasis in graphic design, although he was also very interested in and pursued photography. Upon graduation, he opened his own graphic design firm and pursued the grant opportunities with National Geographic. In 2008, he was tapped as one of their Young Explorers.

He pursued a project on Mountaintop Removal. See Vimeo clip here.

Readers of this blog will certainly be familiar with Josh's work which is on view with that of several GC alums and others at the Carnegie Center in New Albany, IN. The show "Project Reclamation" was curated by Mary Margaret (Carlton) Sparks. The show aims to raise awareness about Mountaintop Removal and its impact. Read more on that exhibition here.

In addition, readers of the blog may recall Josh's talk to art majors and others in April 2011, as part of our Art for Lunch series (something we'll be reviving in the Spring -- be on the watch for it!)

Shout out to Josh! And a call to all of our art alums: let us know what you're doing so we can share your news with others!!

And a word of advice to current students: follow your passion! You'll never know where it'll lead you.

PS: Check out Josh's work here.
